Additional Facts Concerning Opportunities with Us

Career Jobs for Network Engineers, Desktop Service Specialists,
Security Consultants, and Remote Support Technicians

Progent is seeking to find staff-level, solutions-driven Microsoft accredited consultants with MCSE or MCP credentials; Cisco certified network consultants who have CCIE credentials; security consultants with CISSP, CISM, or CISA or comparable security certification; and advanced system architecture consultants with experience in mobile access, wireless networking, fault tolerance, disaster recovery, data protection, and server virtualization. Progent also is hiring professionals to join our team of helpdesk service specialists and remote troubleshooting professionals. Also, We are looking for talented administrators able to operate productively in Progent's high-growth, virtual office environment.

By supporting a staff of skilled and motivated consultants, delivering world-class client services, and offering a strong results-focused fee structure, We have managed to expand our customer list rapidly while providing consulting services to hundreds of companies in Northern California and across the U.S. A sophisticated virtual office network, a shared information database, and a group approach to problem resolution have allowed Progent to maintain a skilled staff and a satisfied customer base.

For an information technology consultant with technical support experience, teaming with Progent or working for Progent's customers will expand your skills via cooperation with our staff of highly supportive, talented engineers. Progent's commitment to providing information technology consulting and technical help to small and midsize organizations will give you the opportunity to work closely with decision makers and contribute appreciably to the success of exciting companies.

We are hiring consultants who can show recognized certification in their technical focus. For example, if you are a Microsoft consultant, you should have earned your Microsoft MCSE credential. For Cisco experts, have your CCIE or CCNP certificate. For network security, you should show you CISSP, CISA, CISM, or other leading security certifications. Naturally, Progent is aware of "paper experts". Nevertheless, simply because a certificate does not guarantee excellence is no justification for not earning one. If you know your field, then most of these tests should pose no great difficulty. The point is that if you call yourself an expert, then customers expect certifications. We can promote your talents, but you must have basic credentials for us to work with. If you are adamantly opposed to the concept of certifications, we can understand and honor your opinion, but you are likely not a good candidate.

Improve Your Abilities with the Best Technology and
Working with a Great Team of Computer Engineers

Progent's business climate will allow you to become a more capable consulting professional by enhancing your information technology skills and boosting the loyalty of your clients. Progent delivers on this promise by recruiting the best professional talent for you to work with, offering a state-of-the-art network and communications infrastructure, using specialized application utilities to deliver the maximum quality of service, and by optimizing proven business models for finding and maintaining customers.

The most important factor that distinguishes us from other consulting companies is the excellence of our service staff. Out of the scores of consulting experts who have joined Progent, we have assembled the best expertise across a wide range of technical areas. Be it Microsoft servers, Cisco firewalls, corporate security, Apple, Linux, virtual servers, or other key areas, we engage professionals who can enable you to be successful on major jobs by combining the aggregate skills of our team of professionals.

To promote the success of Progent's consultants, we invest significantly in providing the best technology to do the job properly. Progent will leverage information technology to an extraordinary degree and our advanced virtual office environment enables effortless communications, cooperation, and knowledge exchange with other Progent consultants — all from home-based or mobile offices. Consultants don’t throw away time or lose income because of regular drives to a physical office, and any travel you do for in-person customer jobs is based on your own schedule, not ours. The most attractive part is that much of Progent's support work can be done off-site, offering 100% efficiency for billable time. In fact, some of our staff do off-site consulting only.

Progent's operations are set up for responding quickly and effectively to client needs through knowledge exchange and collaborative problem resolution. Even though Progent's consultants operate with a high level of freedom, dispatching is centralized, client issues and solutions are meticulously tracked, documented, and archived for convenient reference, up-to-date consultant schedules are published to streamline group tasks and enable trouble escalation, and client approval is always evaluated. We strengthen the sense of connection via monthly team conferences and regular corporate events.

Most of our team is located throughout California, but we are building a rapidly expanding group of network professionals from across the U.S. Progent's virtual office infrastructure eliminates geographic boundaries that restrict the productivity of conventional business structures. We complete the package by providing a comprehensive employee care program to ensure the physical health and financial welfare of our employees and their relations.

Not only do we have awesome consulting professionals, Progent's marketing and administration teams live up to the high standards that characterizes Progent. These high-performance factors behind Progent’s growth are helping us to identify and sign up the 50-60 new customers we are currently acquiring every month. We lately marked the delivery of services to our 1,000th customer. Try typing “Cisco consultants” or “Microsoft consultants” into Google to see for yourself why we are also a strong marketing organization.

Having a passion for technical excellence is a key for growth with us. A career in consulting will push you to enhance your skills more than you would in any other job in network technology. Being confronted by a continual stream of network challenges is what makes consulting exciting. Clients rely on consultants to do the toughest jobs. Innovative projects, leading-edge deployments, vexing or chronic problems, and difficult upgrades are the basis for our services every day. At Progent, you will not stall or be pigeonholed, as is sadly typical for computer engineers in traditional corporate roles. You will awake every day excited about the challenges to come.

Along the way, you will work with some great people, both by building close client relationships and by operating closely with other Progent consultants, where you will learn from and contribute to their success. Of course, technology is vital, but we are a relationship-oriented organization through and through. If you don’t offer strong people skills or like working with a varied group of personalities, then Progent is probably a poor fit.

If this sounds good to you, we urge you to talk to Progent about our vision of the future of information technology consulting.
